Cat’s New 40 to 175 kW Gen-Sets
Posted on May 31, 2012
Caterpillar Inc. will be introducing new 40 to 175 kW diesel generator sets for 60 Hz applications powered by its C4.4 and C6.6 model diesel engines. The new diesel generator sets include improved enclosures offering three levels of sound attenuation. The standard generator sets feature a smaller footprint, with improved paint coverage providing excellent corrosion resistance. For cold weather climates, the enclosures can be configured to include full insulation coverage; the control panel compliments the enclosures by facilitating optional ambient control hardware and can accommodate motorized louver conversions. Two sizes of sub base tanks are available providing minimum run times of 24 or 48 hours at 100% load. The EMCP 4.2 control panel on these generator sets offers improved screen navigation and enables remote communications. Cat said the new gen-sets are available with a choice of local market driven features which meet EPA Emergency Standby specifications, and are IBC and OSHPD certified.
